Lots of us have underlying stresses that eat at us daily. There are a lot of ways to deal with it, but I have found that just relaxing with an inkpen and paper has been doing wonders for me. I draw my stress away.
So if that is your thing too, and maybe you want to have a little bit of a platform to share your activism about diabetes (or something else if you like) there is a neat project that is going on in the Brooklyn Library. It's called the Sketch Book Project.
You can order a sketch book and you have several months (up to a year depending on when you order your book) and you can choose a theme they offer or just do your own book. You do NOT have to be an artist, poet or anything like that. It is the expression they are seeking. Your book goes into the library and each year they take the previous year participants books on a national tour. People will get to read or see or touch your book.
I got mine a couple of weeks ago and have been enjoying drawing and writing in it.

Kind of thought you might like something that was a little different. Let me know if you get one, so I can look you up.
